此情可待:追忆戴安娜

2006-07-16 10:36

    On July 29,1981,Lady Diana Spencer married Prince Charles and became the Princess of Wales — and an international superstar.

    On July 29,1981,Lady Diana Spencer took "Philip Charles Arthur George"— she mangled the order of Prince Charles‘ names during her vows— as her lawful wedded husband and entered a family hidebound by practices no outsider could fathom.

    It turned out to be much more than she bargained for. It also turned out to be much more than they bargained for. But for the media, it was a golden bonanza.

    The Media Maelstrom

    "The media changed dramatically in that decade of the 1980s," says Bob Houston, publisher of Royalty Monthly magazine.

    "Diana was the spearhead of the American invasion of Britain, the celebrity culture," says Houston.

    "The British media is changing. It is becoming much more celebrity-driven. And we had this No. 1 celebrity."

    Diana, with her photogenic good looks, her sympathetic gestures and an air of vulnerability, seemed much more relaxed than the other royals,and much more accessible. She instantly clicked with the public, who couldn‘t get enough of her.

    "From the time she entered public life, Diana conveyed her vulnerability with her eyes, her gestures, her speech, and her touch," Sally Bedell Smith wrote in her book Diana in Search of Herself. "Alongside her beauty,this evident fragility made her a star."

    Newspaper editors found the public was eager to lap up articles about Diana, her clothes, her style, her public engagements, how she was raising her two young sons. The ‘80s, says Houston, were "the Decade of Diana."

    The ‘90s were also good for the tabloids and royal watchers. By the late’80s, the press— and the public — had caught on to the fact that Diana and Charles were rarely together. By 1990, many were aware the marriage of the Prince and Princess of Wales was far from happy. But divorce did not seem like a possibility.
